Background Note

Agriculture is the largest employer in India @ 50% and a pre-dominant sector of India’s economy with an annual output of $ 370 billion. While India ranks 12th in manufacturing and 11th in services sector, it is the 2nd largest agricultural GDP in the world, $90 billion more than USA. Agriculture is deeply embedded into Indian culture, festivals and life philosophy, being the principal economic activity for the majority of our population. Indian Agriculture has undergone a momentous metamorphosis from the days of ‘ship to mouth’ and now exporting agri produce worth $ 40 billion. Our farmers have made India proud with their zealous and diligent hard work, supported by government policies and technologies from the industry.

However, in the last two decades there is a paradoxical situation emerging. On one hand, there are massive scale success stories and innovative agribusiness models, powered by policies and substantially enhanced engagement of the industry, banks and government institutions. On the other hand, natural resources are depleting, rural urban income gap is widening and farmers suicide deaths continue unabated. A silver lining, nonetheless is that educated youth understand the potential and are engaging in farm ventures and agribusinesses, progressive farmers in many parts of the country are innovating conventional practices to become successful farm entrepreneurs by leveraging upon the strengths of the markets, industry and institutions.

Indian Council of Food and Agriculture envisions to provide exposure to farmers by sharing successful agribusiness models and sensitize them with policies, schemes, technologies and markets. Rewarding evolution will be evident when farmers themselves become role models for fellow farmers. With this aspiration, ICFA along with All India Farmers Alliance is organizing the 2nd All India Progressive Farmers Convention on 28 February to 01 March 2019 in New Delhi. The forum aims to establish a national level platform for progressive farmers to share their success stories and connect with the industry and key stake-holders for collaboration and growth opportunities.

अखिल भारतीय प्रगतिशील किसान सम्मेलन

अखिल भारतीय प्रगतिशील किसान सम्मेलन और पुरस्कार समारोह जैसा की आप जानते हैं, भारतीय कृषि के पिछले दो दशकों में एक विरोधाभास की स्थिति है । एक ओर, बड़े पैमाने पर सफलता की कहानियां और प्रगतिशील कृषि व्यवसाय मॉडल है । और दूसरी तरफ, प्राकृतिक संसाधन घट रहे हैं, ग्रामीण - शहरी आय अंतर बढ़ रहा है और किसानों की आत्महत्याएं चिंताजनक हैं । संयोग से एक सकारात्मक सत्य यह भी है की शिक्षित युवाओं को कृषि उद्यमों और व्यवसायों में फायदेमंद एवं अपार क्षमता की समझ है और वे कृषि क्षेत्र में कार्य करने के लिए उत्सुक है । देश के कई प्रगतिशील किसानों ने पारंपरिक कृषि पद्धतियों में नवपरिवर्तन किया है ताकि वे बाजारों, उद्योगों और संस्थानों की ताकत से लाभ उठा सकें। भारतीय कृषि एवं खाद्य परिषद, इन प्रगतिशील किसानों के लिए अपनी सफलता और कृषि व्यवसाय मॉडल को साझा करने के लिए एक राष्ट्रीय स्तर का मंच स्थापित कर रहे हैं । मंच का उद्देश्य, सहयोग और विकास के अवसरों के लिए नीतियों, योजनाओं, तकनीकों और बाजारों के साथ उन्हें संवेदनशील बनाना है । इस माध्यम से ये प्रगतिशील किसान, स्वयं, साथी किसानों के लिए आदर्श बनेंगे। इस आकांक्षा के साथ, आईसीएफए ने आल इंडिया किसान अलायंस के साथ 28 फरवरी से 01 मार्च 2019 तक नई दिल्ली में दूसरा अखिल भारतीय प्रगतिशील किसान सम्मेलन और पुरस्कार समारोह का आयोजन किया है। सभी भारतीय राज्यों से पुरस्कार नामांकन और लगभग 300 प्रगतिशील किसानों की भागीदारी एक समृद्ध अनुभव सुनिश्चित करेंगे ।
